Tan & Loom’s Feel Good, Fashion-Forward, Gift Guide

Tan & Loom’s Feel Good, Fashion-Forward, Gift Guide

This holiday season elevate your gifting game with slow-fashion brand Tan & Loom’s assortment of handcrafted leather bags. The curation is a testament to the conscious, mindful values that are the cornerstone of the Kolkata based brand. By focusing on handcrafting by skilled Indian artisans, small-batch production, and prioritizing impeccable quality first and foremost, these gifts are sure to make both the giver and receiver feel good.

For those looking to move away from fast fashion, Tan & Loom offers a refreshing alternative made to last, intentional, and authentic.

The 'Traveler’s Trunk Sling' and 'Artisan's Little Lune' showcase the magic of vegetable-tanned leather, which the brand has employed in most collections. Vegetable-tanned leather is genuine leather that derives its colour from natural dyes. This artisanal technique not only ensures each piece is one-of-a-kind from the start but also promises graceful aging, developing a unique patina over time.

 

On the other hand, pieces like the ‘Barrel Potli’ and ‘Skinny Baguette’ use full-grain genuine nappa leather, mindfully sourced from factory dead-stock. In service of a circular economy, this turns an export-quality material that would otherwise have been discarded into a unique statement piece.

 

 

The 'Mini Market Tote' completes this selection by incorporating ikat fabric sourced from weavers in Telangana. The brand has often used centuries old handloom traditions in its designs, like the Banarasi Brocade featured in ‘The Potli Project’. 

Each piece of this curated selection embodies a facet of Tan & Loom's principles: ethical sourcing, artisanal handcrafting, revival of local fabrics. Gift a piece of joy this Christmas, choosing fashion that not only looks good but also feels good—both for the you and the style lover in your life.
